I use 100% recycled tote bags made out of reused cotton and plastic bottles. All materials are also shipped in 100% recycled tissue paper and recycled cardboard boxes. 100% recycled totes reusing every day products to carry around our everyday purchases just seemed to make sense.

Trade paper and plastic for Cloth

Green Earth Journey

Plastic sandwich bags are made of polyethelene plastic, which is recyclable, but not all recycling centers will recycle them. In addition, many people don't know they are recyclable, and so simply throw them in the regular trash bin. Ecolect has a good tutorial about what the numbers on plastics mean, and which ones are best for recycling. You can find some very good looking bags lined with cotton on Etsy at Gnomeclothes.
